Dear Friend: 

Here is our catalog of new Liberty Home designs. The more carefully 
you read it, the more convinced you will be, I believe, that it 
offers you the opportunity of securing a first-quality home at a 
price considerably lower than the same type of home would ordinarily 
cost you. 

There is no easier or quicker way of getting your new home built 
and completed, ready to move into, than to buy it on the Liberty 
plan. You simply order the particular house that you want and 
we ship you at once the materials that you will need in building 
it — lumber cut to fit, ready to erect — also sash, doors, 
paint, glass, hardware, etc. Instead of having to shop around and 
buy all of the various kinds of materials, item by item, you re- 
ceive them from us all in one lot, at a quantity price much 
lower than you would otherwise have to pay. 

During the 45 years that we have been in business, thousands of 
families in all parts of the country have done just what you are 
doing now. They studied our catalog, selected the Liberty Home 
that suited them best, filled out the order blank and, surprising 
as it may seem, had their home finished and were living in it 
before the next rent-day rolled around. How well pleased they are 
you will see when you read their letters on the following pages. 

The way is open to you to secure a Liberty Home just as many 
others have done before you. Here's the way to go about it! Read 
the catalog carefully. Pick out the home you like best and decide 
which of the five payment plans you prefer (see last page). Then 
just mail the order blank. Or, if you wish any additional informa- 
tion before filling out your order, write me a letter on the back 
of this sheet. I am not sure how long we can maintain our pres- 
ent EXTREMELY LOW PRICES, as the costs of building materials are 
constantly rising. So it will be to your advantage to place your 
order as soon as you possibly can. Mail your order or write me 
today I 

Sincerely yours,

you explain to me about this home are as follows;

,OUR home is the most important 
purchase you will ever make. 
_ Probably the largest in dollars and 
cents; certainly the one that will most di- 
rectly influence your comfort, happiness 
and well being for many years to come. 

Surely, in considering this purchase 
your first thought should be to provide the 
greatest possible assurance that your new 
home will be all you expected it to be. 
Liberty Homes and the Liberty Ready-Cut 
System give you that assurance. The Lib- 
erty System takes the gamble and uncer- 
tainty out of building — protects you from 
the heartaches that result from faulty 
planning, excessive costs, and improper or 
inferior materials. 

In every Liberty Home the construction 
is of the same type as that of the attrac- 
tive, costly Architect-Built homes you 
have often seen and admired. They are 
erected in exactly the same manner as any 
other sturdy, substantial home is built, 
each individual piece of material stoutly 
and permanently nailed in place in the 
same way that first-class carpenters are ac- 
customed to build good homes. 



Briefly, the Liberty System of Home 
Building is simply this — a system by 
means of which you can select from a 
large variety of styles and sizes of houses 
the one which ideally meets your idea of 
the kind of a home you would like to own. 
It offers you the protection of a Complete 
Home-Building Service, including not 
only the architectural plans and working 
instructions, but also the lumber, meas- 
ured and cut in the proper lengths to 
conform exactly with the building plans. 
You are also furnished with the necessary 
sizes and quantities of nails, the hardware, 
paint, stains, varnish, doors, windows, 
roofing and other materials specified in 
detail on another page of this catalog. 

The result is a home that is not only 
architecturally correct in every particular 
but is built according to plans which have 
been tried and proved by hundreds of 
others like yourself who wanted a first- 
quality home at a fair and reasonable price. 

Now turn the page and read the com- 
plete story of the Liberty Ready-Cut Sys- 
tem and its many advantages from the 
standpoint of quality, ease of construction 
and, most important of all, LOW COST.

CARPENTER 
WORK i 



Hours of Work Eliminated by Time- 
Saving Machinery. 




JN BUILDING a house, the part of 
the work that is the hardest and 
takes up the most time is the 
measuring, sawing and planing the lumber 
— getting it ready to put up. The actual 
work of nailing it in place is easily and 
quickly done. 

Make it a point some day to watch a 
carpenter building a house and see how 
much time he spends with his rule and 
pencil, figuring and measuring the lengths 
and angles of the various pieces of lumber, 
and then count up how many hours each 
day are consumed in sawing all of the 
lumber by hand. You will realize at once 
that a good share of the carpenter's time 
is being wasted in doing things which 
could be done much more quickly and 
cheaply by machinery. 

The Liberty System of Home Building 
eliminates entirely the expense of having 
to pay a carpenter for the hours he spends 
every day in getting the lumber ready to 
nail in place. In our mills the work of 
measuring, sawing and mitering is all done 
by machinery — not only in a fraction of 
the time it takes to do it by hand but also 
with absolute accuracy. 

The result is that you will not have to 
pay a carpenter nearly as much to build a 
Liberty Home because it will not take him 
nearly so long. In fact, in many cases, it 



is not necessary to hire a carpenter at all. 
With the difficult measuring and sawing 
eliminated, you can take advantage of the 
assistance offered by your friends and 
neighbors, and trust them with the work 
of nailing — because the lumber is cut to 
exact size and fits into its proper place 
without any alterations. 

By purchasing the materials for your 
home from us, cut to size and ready to 
nail in place, you save hours and hours of ' 
work. 

For example, it takes a carpenter about 
eight hours to measure and saw the rafters 
for the roof of an average size house. In 
our mill, however, we can saw the rafters 
for two or three dozen houses in the same 
length of time. 

When you consider that the same saving 
applies throughout the various other parts 
of the construction, you 
will see at once why the 
Liberty System enables 
you to build your home 
at such an extremely 
low cost.

Efficient Production Methods 
Result in Lower Costs

a THE COST 
3f MATERIALS/ 



: |p].Iig|HERE is no magic in our being 
g||*gg able to furnish you with the ma- 
terials for building your home at 



a price that will save you a substantial sum 
of money. The explanation is very simple! 

In the first place, we manufacture an 
immense number of homes every year — 
and quantity production results in tre- 
mendous savings in the building of homes 
just as it does in the building of automo- 
biles, refrigerators, stoves or any other 
manufactured product. 

Efficient Production Methods 

In the second place, the mammoth Lib- 
erty mills are equipped with the most 
modern electrically operated machinery, 
designed to cut lumber accurately and eco- 
nomically. Such efficient production 
methods enable us to produce the finished 
product at a fraction of the usual cost. 

Thirdly, the business we do is not con- 
fined to one small community, but is 
nation-wide in its scope. Consequently we 
are able to purchase materials in tremen- 
dous quantities at much more advanta- 
geous prices than if we had to buy our 
lumber, paints, hardware and other ma- 
terials in small lots as a local contractor 
would have to do. 

Then, too, we employ no agents, solici- 

3 



tors or traveling salesmen, whose salaries 
have to be added to the cost of what we 
sell. This, in itself, results in a consider- 
able saving of money to you. 

But the savings above mentioned are not 
all by any means. Read on and see! 

Not a Piece of Lumber Wasted! 

Waste is one of the greatest enemies of 
life. It robs your energy. It robs your 
bank account. Did you ever notice the 
heaps of wasted materials, lying around a 
newly finished house? This wasted mate- 
rial costs the owner good money, just as 
much as the material actually used, yet it 
was thrown away. It makes you feel good 
to know that when you build the Liberty 
way, all this waste has been eliminated and 
you pay only for the material that is 
actually used for construction. 

Not a Penny Thrown Away? 

Good building material is too valuable 
to be wasted. Through scientific planning 
and manufacturing methods, every inch of 
good lumber is used. Where there is not 
waste, there is no overcharge. In building 
a Liberty Home you profit from these ef- 
ficient production principles. 

But this is not all that you save — as you 
will see when you read the following pages. 










DESIGNED 
THROUGHOUT 
BY MASTER 
ARCHITECTS! 




EARS ago, before the Liberty 
Method of home-building was 
established, the ideal way to 
build a home was to have the work super- 
vised from beginning to end by a capable 
architect who was experienced in design- 
ing and building good homes. An archi- 
tect understands proper construction 
methods; he knows the proper materials to 
use for each particular purpose; he sees to 
it that your home is built exactly in ac- 
cordance with approved plans and speci- 
fications. 



No Extra Fees to Pay 

GJ 4 J HEN you build a Liberty Home 
l/l/you receive the benefit of valuable 
architectural service without having 
to pay any extra fee. Every Liberty Home 
is designed by an experienced architect, 
and the materials are selected and manu- 
factured exactly in accordance with his 
detailed plans and specifications. 

Our architectural service assures you 
that your home will be properly con- 
structed in every particular. On the other 
hand, if you hire a carpenter to furnish the 
material and build you a house for a cer- 
tain sum of money, there is no way for 
you to know definitely what the final re- 
sults will be. He may scrimp here and 
there, perhaps splicing short pieces of lum- 
ber together where full length pieces are 
required. The result usually is a house of 
flimsy construction. 






HERE is nothing new or experi- 
mental about the construction 
principles followed in the design- 
ing of Liberty Homes. They are the out- 
growth of 45 years of experience in the 
building of homes of a fine, substantial 
type — homes numbered well up into the 
thousands in practically every section of 
the country. 

One of the outstanding superiorities of 
Liberty construction is that every piece of 
lumber is of adequate size and strength to 
meet the particular requirements of the 
use to which it is to be put. 

For example, where experience has 
shown certain timbers, such as girders, 
joists, studding and rafters, must be of a 
particular weight or dimension in order to 
insure the proper degree of sturdiness and 
rigidity, our architects see to it that the 
specifications, in every case, fully meet 
such requirements. 



ARE STURDILY 

CONSTRUCTED 

IN EVERY 

DETAI L 



Make This Simple Comparison 

Contrast this with houses that you see a 
carpenter erecting without architectural 
supervision. Observe how the carpenter 
has filled in here and there with crooked 
boards and short pieces full of knots. Then 
when the house is finished, squint along 
the walls and see if they are straight. See 
if the rooms are the same dimension at 
one side as at the other by examining the 
floor boards, or by looking to see if the 
wallpaper has the same pattern in the cor- 
ners of the room from top to bottom. 




Everything Figured Out 
for You in Advance — 
to Save Time and Labor 



JN THE Liberty System of home 
building, nothing is left to 
chance. Every construction de- 
tail is figured out by our architects in 
advance, so that when the house is shipped 
to you, every piece of lumber is cut the 
right length and at the correct angle to fit 
properly. Consequently, when the work 
of erection is completed, you have a house 
that stands four square — with walls 
straight and plumb, and every detail of its 
construction carried out exactly as called 
for in the plans. 




Even though you were to pay an archi- 
tect several hundred dollars to design your 
home, you could have no home more 
solidly and substantially constructed than 
a Liberty. 

The construction of Liberty Homes is 
carried out in strict accordance with the 
best modern engineering practice and will 
fully meet the requirements in practically 
all localities. 

If, however, there should be any change 
from standard construction that your local 
building code requires, we will be glad, 
when requested, to provide for such 
changes and furnish the materials accord- 
ingly, charging only for the extra mate- 
rial, if any, that may be needed. 





Solve the Rent Problem 
Right Now— Once and for All! 

| HE only way to protect yourself 
against rising rents is to build a 
home of your own. Otherwise 
you are forever at the mercy of landlords 
and are forced to pay whatever they choose 
to demand. How much more pleasant it is 
to have a home of your own, free from 
constant worries about being obliged to 
move, should your landlord take a notion 
to raise your rent beyond what you can af- 
ford to pay! 

And, best of all, think how nice it is to 
have a home of your own when you get 
along in years and your income drops! 
Then it will be harder than ever to meet 



the monthly rent payments. Decide now to 
protect yourself from this future burden 
by building a home of your own this very 
month. There is nothing that will give you 
greater satisfaction, comfort, and a sense 
of security in years to come! 

The plans for each and every Liberty 
Home shown in this catalog have been de- 
veloped by our architects with great care, 
resulting in plans that are most practical 
from the standpoint of convenience in 
arrangement, as well as economy in build- 
ing. We recommend you choose the design 
that suits you best and build it just as 
planned by our architects. Maximum sav- 
ings will be the result. 

If you should find, however, that minor 
changes in the plan or in the specifications 
would be desirable in your particular case, 
we will be glad to accommodate you by 
making such changes which our architects 
consider practical. 










The Lumber Is Cut to Exact Measurements, 
Assuring a Perfect Fit 



rHOW UTTU 
TIME »T TM< E5 

to build 



SHE Liberty method of construc- 
tion is so simple that many pur- 
chasers of Liberty Homes do all 
of the building themselves. If you have 
the time, you will save just that much 
more money, and, in addition, you will 
have a great deal of pleasure. 

But, whether or not you do the build- 
ing yourself, the Liberty method enables 
you to save money by being your own 
contractor. The fact that Liberty con- 
struction plans are so much more complete 
than the usual architects' drawings makes 
it possible to build a Liberty home without 
the least difficulty. 

The figures at the bottom of the page 
will give you an idea as to how long it will 
take to erect the particular Liberty home 
you want, if you hire one carpenter and 
two helpers to do the work. You can, of 
course, shorten this time considerably by 
arranging to help in whatever spare time 
you have, thereby also reducing the ex- 
pense of carpenter labor. 

You will see by the letters from our cus- 
tomers that many of them built their own 
homes with no outside help at all — yet 
they did not have the least bit of trouble. 



Following is given the estimated number of days' 
time required by one carpenter with two helpers, 
working eight hours a day, to build each Liberty

Blueprints Easy to Follow 

"We are well pleased with our Liberty 
home and garage. I have done all the 
work myself with my wife as helper. Sev- 
eral carpenters have looked at our hou=e 
lately and think I did a good job the whole 
way thru. I have never worked at car- 
penter work in my life, but I was able 
to read the blue print with no 
trouble at all. and I just followed 
it, and did fine." George Sanders,

The ROWLAND-£&fcWy _%W 

in the ULtta-Modatn Motif} 



The trend toward streamlined effects in architectural 
design is well exemplied in this charming bungalow which 
follows the ultra-modern motif in every line of its dis- 
tinctive styling. Characterized by complete absence of 




frills, it is a splendid example of how architectural beauty 
can be achieved by simplicity rather than by the ornate. 
One of the outstanding features of the impressive front 
elevation is the window arrangement at both of the front 
corners. With the side-windows 
set directly adjoining those at the 
front, an abundance of light is 
provided. At the same time, this 
arrangement insures a broad ex- 
panse of wall space, not encroached 
upon by windows, facilitating the 
placing of large pieces of furni- 
ture, such as pianos and daven- 
ports. 

In keeping with the modern 
trend toward devoting less space to 
dining rooms, the eating quarters 
in the Rowland are made a part 
of the kitchen. With one side en- 
tirely open, and with two sides 
occupied entirely by windows, the 
dinette is not only spacious but 
also light and cheerful. 

If your liking is for a type of 
home that expresses individuality, 
without bordering on the extreme, 
you will find t'.is ultra modern de- 
sign exactly suited to your desires.

The WINSLOW 



If you have dreamed of some day owning a home of 
five cosy rooms downstairs to meet your family's present 
needs, and with space for two additional sleeping rooms 
upstairs in case you should later require them, the 
Winslow is your dream come true. When you study the 




floor plan below, one of the features that will appeal to 
you is the location of the bedrooms— both on the same 
side of the house, entirely closed off from the living 
room and far enough away from the kitchen so that 
those who wish to sleep may do so undisturbed br- 
other members of the family 
who may be using the living 
room or kitchen. It will be 
noted also that the bath is lo- 
cated as far as possible from the 
living room, but is convenient to 
both bedrooms. 

The large, well-proportioned 
living room has an unusual 
amount of light with the popu- 
lar studio window at the front 
and two regular size windows at 
the side. The dinette arrange- 
ment with the wide curved arch- 
way connecting the living room 
exemplifies the present-day trend 
toward larger living rooms and 
smaller dining rooms— while the 
centrally located stairway, with 
a door to close it off and elim- 
inate the possibility of drafts, is 
in keeping with the frequently 
voiced desire of a great many 
prospective home owners. Height 
of ceilings S feet. 




The CONCORD— Abut ■Otttacti™ 

f2u.nGG.Low - Well Planned - Jlour in @oit 



To look at the pleasant exterior design and to visit its 
well-arranged interior, no one would guess that the Con- 
cord is priced as low as the figure shown on our price list. 

The Concord is a charming home that offers you the 
choice of two good plans with large, comfortable rooms 
with generous closet space. Plan A is arranged with a 
grade cellar stairway. In Plan B the grade entrance ad- 
dition as shown on page 47 should be used when a cellar 
stairway is desired. 

In the Concord every inch of space is used to good 



advantage, and whichever plan you choose, you will have 
a home that will give you much more satisfaction than 
your money could buy anywhere else. 

And here's another thing in its favor— the roomy attic 
can easily be finished oft" to make another bedroom. 

Shingles are furnished for the sidewalls with gray 
creosote stain for two full brush coats. These shingles 
are guaranteed to give satisfactory service for 25 years. 
Shutters and flower boxes furnished as shown. Height of 
ceilings S'6".

The MAYFAIR - - -0* <Jd**l 4jc 

(food to Jlook -(it - Pleasant to Jlive <)n 




Seldom will you find a home that can 
compare with the Mayfair from the 
standpoint of an attractive exterior 
combined with a well-planned interior. 
In fact, it is hard to imagine how 
either one could be improved to add a 
higher degree of beauty or a greater 
degree of convenience than has been 
attained in this superbly modern home. 
With double-lap shingles accentuating 
the breadth of its 30 ft. front, and with 
slatted Colonial shutters to lend a touch 
of color and contrast, the Mayfair can- 
not but excite the admiration of all 
who have an eye for beauty. Everyone 
who sees it is immediately filled with 
the desire to own it. 

Glance at the floor plan and observe 
the large, well-proportioned rooms, the 
cosy dining alcove just to the left of 
the kitchen and the abundance of closet 
space. 

You will like the convenient location 
of the bathroom between the two bed- 
rooms and handy to the stairway which 
leads up from the hall to the second 
floor. The attic is plenty large to allow 
for two additional bedrooms at any 
future time should they be needed. 
Attic flooring is furnished for a space 
14 x 30 feet. 

The Mayfair is indeed an ideal home 
and the more you study the picture 
and floor plan, the more delighted you 
will be with its completeness in every 
way. Height of ceilings 8 feet.

For attractiveness in outward ap- 
pearance and convenience in interior 
arrangement, it would be difficult to 
find a home more appealing than the 
charmingly designed Cornell. 

Departing from the more conven- 
tional square or rectangular type of 
house, its jutting front and outward- 
extending living room give it a dis- 
tinguished appearance that is seldom 
found except in much more expen- 
sive homes. The slatted Colonial shut- 
ters and the front gable, with its 
circular window set off by a back- 
ground of plain matched siding, 
combine to contribute to the exterior 
a touch of distinction, while the dou- 
ble layer and 12-inch exposure of the 
shingles on the sidewall creates an 
effect that is unusually pleasing. 

When you study the floor plan, you 
will he immediately impressed by the 
size of the living room. Measuring 13 
feet in length and 12 feet in width.it 
provides ample room not only for an 
abundance of chairs and occasional 
tahles but also for a grand piano. 
This room, as well as all of the others, 
has a full ceiling height of S feet. 

Among the other notable features 
are a large guest closet oft* the vesti- 
bule, a clothes closet in each of the 
bedrooms, and a linen closet open- 
ing off the hallway. 




The WELLINGTON - - ■# p t ; )e U/ !nna 

■Qttt&ctive - Ec onomical - Well Planned 





The neat English exterior of this favorite design, with the 
brown stained sidewall shingles, encloses an interior plan that 
will please the tastes of many modern families. Modern home 
makers require more in a home than an attractive exterior, as 
they become more and more economical in the saving of time 
and steps. Convenience is one of the first requisites of a good 
design. In both plans of the Wellington we find the happy 
combination of an attractive exterior and a most convenient 
plan combined with good taste and real economy. 

Plan A is designed for the family requiring only two bed- 
rooms with a large attic space that can easily be made access- 
ible by having an attic stairway leading up out of the kitchen 
over the present cellar stairs. The small additional cost for 
attic stairs, extra door, etc., will be quoted on request. 

In Plan B the large 
attic space has been 
utilized to provide for 
two bedrooms in addi- 
tion to the splendid large 
bedroom on the first 
floor. 

Ornamental window 
shutters and flower 
boxes are furnished for 
front windows as shown 
in illustration. 

Height of ceilings first

The FAIRFIELD 




It would be difficult to find a five- 
room home possessing a more attrac- 
tive exterior or a more pleasing inte- 
rior arrangement than the ultra-mod- 
ern home here illustrated. 

With the dining room located at 
the very front of the house, and the 
kitchen directly behind it in a pro- 
jecting wing, both having windows 
facing the street, the Fairfield marks 
a distinct departure from other 
styles of homes which have the kitchen 
at the rear. This arrangement results 
in the saving of a great many steps 
from kitchen to front door when an- 
swering the door-bell. 

Extra wide studio windows in the 
dinette and living room make both of 
these rooms exceptionally light and 
cheerful, while windows on two sides 
of each bedroom provide not only an 
abundance of light but also ample 
cross-ventilation to keep them cool in 
summer. 

In addition to the two sleeping 
rooms on the lower floor, there is 
also space for two bedrooms on the

This modern six-room dwelling, with a porch that 
gives it a broad expanse of front, appeals especially to 
those who want a home of generous proportions at a 
moderate price. 

An exceptionally large living room, with a fireplace at 
one side and French door leading to the porch, is one of 
the many attractive features of the well-planned interior. 
Another is the wide studio window in the dining room. 
Still another is the provision for a lavatory and toilet on 
the first floor, in addition to the bathroom on the sec- 
ond floor. Large closets are provided for each of the 



three bedrooms and in addition there is the convenient 
closet for linens opening off of the downstairs hall and 
the handy guest closet off of the vestibule. 

All in all, the Ashland is a striking example of the 
many "plus values" that are incorporated in Liberty 
Homes. The most painstaking care has been exercised 
in the working out of every detail so as to insure a maxi- 
mum of comfort and convenience to the thousands who, 
when they buy a home, will want one that will give 
them everything they have longed for. Height of ceil-

The RICHMOND— /&t«^o/»m«/^«tm 

Alodetn in @omf\Olt — Convenience 



Exterior design makes for desirability and determines 
the true value of a home equally as much as the interior 
arrangement. In the Richmond, a true Cape Cod Colonial 
design, you have a home with an exterior that is perfect 
to the smallest detail, and an interior arrangement that 
provides the maximum in comfort and convenience. There 
is something quite satisfying and restful about the Rich- 
mond with its shingled sidewalls, the formal entrance, 
quaint dormers, shuttered windows. The floor plan is of 
a well established and popular type, having the entrance 
in the center, a large living room on one side opening onto 



the attractive side porch, and on the other side the dining 
room and kitchen. Notice the attractive bay window in 
the dining room with its built-in window seat. Adjoining 
the large kitchen and handy to the living room is the rear 
entry and down-stairs toilet. 

The open stairway leads up out of the vestibule to a 
roomy, well-lighted hall upstairs which connects with the 
three bedrooms and bath. Although shingles are regularly 
furnished for the sidewalls, siding would be in good taste 
and will be furnished if desired. Height of ceilings, both 
floors, 8 feet.

The BERNARD 



This delightfully pleasing design, with an English 
dormer and a massive chimney standing out against 
the expansive background of roof, is one of the most 
attractive two-story dwellings that our architects have 
ever created. Of particular interest, from the standpoint 
of its interior arrangement, are the vestibule with closets 



flanking it on both sides, the unusually large living room 
with provision for a fireplace, the convenient first-floor 
lavatory off the rear hallway, and a downstairs bedroom. 
With two bedrooms and bath upstairs, each of these bed- 
rooms having two closets, every foot of space is utilized 
to best advantage. Height of ceiling, 8 feet.

In this popular home, the St. Regis, we are proud to 
offer the very latest style of home, from the standpoint 
of exterior design as well as interior arrangement. A de- 
lightful balanced effect is given by the sweeping lines of 
the roof which extends down past the chimney on one 
side and over a trellised archway on the other side, giving 



it a total frontage of 38 feet. The exterior may either 
be shingled, as shown above, or finished with wide siding. 
Notice how large and pleasant the rooms are and how 
conveniently they are arranged. Height of ceilings: first 
floor 8'6", second floor 8'0". See detailed specifications

Woithington should have a strong appeal. It cannot help 
but satisfy those who seek the maximum in living com-

The floor plan arrangement is ideal with an unusually 
large comfortable living room, dining room, kitchen and

The VAN DYKE 



This beautiful Colonial home has the grace and dignity 
combined with interior spaciousness that usually come 
only in homes costing much more to build. It is this com- 
bination of charm, comfort and economy that makes the 
Van Dyke outstanding in popularity decades after its 
model first flourished in the hospitable Colonies. The use 
of the wide-lapped stained shingles for the exterior walls 
is most appropriate, however, siding would be in good 
taste and will be furnished in place of the shingles at a 
nominal extra cost. 



From the moment you enter the Van Dyke through 
the attractive Colonial entrance you are immediately 
impressed with its air of roominess. Every detail of its 
interior plan bespeaks comfort and hospitality. Not a fea- 
ture is lacking that would make this a more desirable 
home. And like all Liberty Homes the Van Dyke has 
those fundamentals that insure lifetime satisfaction — yet 
at a cost considerably less than you would pay for a 
home of commonplace design, inferior construction and 
materials. Height of ceilings 8 feet.

The CAVALIER 



This entrancingly beautiful home, with its combination

standing features is of course the "attached-garage" with 
its roof projecting beyond the grade-landing door form- 



ing a desirable protected entrance. Seldom will you find 
such an abundance of closet space with two closets being 
provided for the large "Owners" bedroom. In fact, the 
Cavalier has every desirable feature that the most dis- 
criminating home-builder would wish for. The slatted 
colonial shutters are furnished for front and side win-

This handsome and distinctive Cape Cod Colonial de- 
sign has won for itself a place high in the esteem of 
home-builders everywhere. With an exterior as delightful 
as the Newport, it is not surprising to find its interior 
arrangement equally as desirable with its six generous 
size rooms and abundant closet space providing the max- 
imum in comfort and convenience. 



The shingled sidewalls with the wide-lapped double 
course shingles, stained white with the shutters painted 
in any contrasting color are most appropriate although 
bevel siding which is preferred by many is in equally 
good taste and will be furnished instead of shingles at a 
nominal extra cost. Ornamental shutters are furnished 
for front and side windows as shown. Height of ceilings

The NANTUCKET 

Tin UdeaL (fataae- attacked Six JQoom 4jome 



Planned on traditional linos of early New England 
architecture and accommodated to the requirements of 
present-day living, this prize-winning Cape Cod Colonial 
design is a perfect example of sane, efficient planning. 
Although compact, it has ample floor space with its well- 
proportioned rooms arranged so as to afford the con- 
venience and privacy all too often lacking in small homes. 

Efficient planning should, and in the Nantucket does, 
provide for the matter of low upkeep as well as original 
building cost. Having eight-foot ceilings on both floors, it 



is an easy and economical home to heat. The attached 
garage is a particularly desirable feature from the stand- 
point of appearance as well as convenience. Aside from 
being a perfect, practical plan, it is also serene and restful 
in appearance with the slatted colonial shutters which 
frame the wide front windows adding the final touch of 
good taste to its attractive exterior. It is a design that 
will lend itself well to good landscaping and will prove 
to be a sound and readily salable investment. Height 
of ceilings 8 feet.

The lasting satisfaction one derives from a home de-

standpoint, too, the Vernon is sure to win admiration. It

is one of the most interesting designs of the modern 
architectural period — beauty — convenience — practicability 
— roominess, all at a low cost. Rarely does one find a de- 
sign with so many outstanding features. 

The exterior walls are finished with wide-lapped 
shingles stained white with the ornamental shutters to 
give the desired contrast. Siding and paint may be sub- 
stituted for the shingles and stain at a small additional 
cost. The large attic space is made available by arrang- 
ing the stairway as shown, conveniently located off the 
dining room. While the first floor joists are 2 x 10" the 
attic floor joists are 2 x 8" with rough attic flooring 
furnished for a space 14 feet wide. Two additional bed- 
rooms may be finished off on the 2nd floor as suggested 
below. A home such as this which provides such a per- 
fect plan with ample provision for future expansion 
deserves to win the sincere approval of all who see it.

The TACOMA 



It is with a great deal of pride that we present the 
Tacoma as it is a type of home that fulfills a long-felt 
want in the hearts of many. The Tacoma not only has 
beauty in every detail of its exterior, but it has an ex- 
ceptionally well laid out interior plan as well. 

One of the features of the Tacoma which appeals most 
to many home builders, is to have a home which pro- 
vides a complete living arrangement on the first floor 
and have it practical at a very little extra expense to 



have two additional bedrooms finished off on the 2nd 
floor at some future time should the necessity arise. 

The exterior has been made most interesting by the well 
designed front porch, the shutters and flower box framing 
the front mullion window, and the use of double course, 
wide-lapped shingles on the sidewalls. Siding is in equally 
good taste and will be substituted for the shingles at the 
extra cost as quoted on page 42. Height of ceilings, 1st 
floor 8'6", 2nd floor S'O". 





The regular price of the Tacoma includes the 
stairway to 2nd floor as shown. 2 x S" 2nd floor 
joists, windows arranged as shown above and the 
attic flooring so the amount involved in finishing 
the upstairs as shown by the suggested plan above 
will be small. The necessary materials for finishing 
these rooms as shown will be quoted on request.

The EDMUND 




The attractive simplicity of design which charac- 
terizes the Edmund makes it the ideal type of 
home for those whose taste in architecture leans 
toward the simple and dignified rather than the 
, ornate. With the shingles stained white, and the 
Colonial slatted shutters in a pleasing shade of 
brown, the effect is highly entrancing. The color 
combination may, of course, be varied, according to 
the taste of the individual purchaser, as we supply 
both paint and stain in any color desired. 

Differing from many of the other Liberty Homes 
in floor plan, this model has a living room lighted 
by three windows, one at the front, and two at the 
sides. Besides being unusually large, the living 
room has another feature that you cannot help but 
appreciate — a convenient closet at the rear for guest 
wraps. Each of the bedrooms also has its own 
individual closet, and there is still another closet 
off the hall which can be used either for clothing 
or for linens, as desired. 

A notable feature, seldom found except in large 
size houses, is the dining alcove, located between 
the living room and the kitchen. Imagine this cosy 
room daintily furnished with a modern dining set, 
and with bright colored curtains on the window! 
Could you think of anything that would contribute 
more to making every mealtime an occasion to be 
looked forward to? 

Now glance at the convenient kitchen arrange- 
ment! On one side, in a recessed nook, space is 
provided for a range and a refrigerator, while on 
the opposite side you can have a cabinet arrange- 
ment like C-4, shown on page 46. With everything 
arranged to best advantage, here is truly a step- 
saving kitchen! 

If you are planning on a moderately priced home, 
and yet one that has every modern feature, we 
commend this model to your careful consideration.

The PILGRIM 



This beautiful bungalow has a host of friends, and 
is indeed worthy of their admiiation. Its exterior shows 
a distinct character of its own, but the inside arrange- 
ment of rooms in each of the two floor plans, the plac- 
ing of the windows, the closets, all have the solid, sub- 
stantial virtues that make a home practical to live in. 




The Pilgrim is a perfect example of how it is possible 
to have the desirable features of the more expensive 
homes at a low cost. 

Two floor plans are offered, Plan A with two bed- 
rooms and plan B three bedrooms. In plan A the living 
room extends across the entire front and if you desire a 

fireplace, an ideal place for 
it would be in the left wall 
where the single window is 
now located. Should you 
intend to build a fireplace 
we will omit this window 
and furnish two smaller 
casement windows, one for 
each side of the fireplace, 
at a small extra cost, 

You have only to exam- 
ine the floor plans of the 
Pilgrim to see how well 
family's needs have been 
provided for. You have 
only to read the complete 
Liberty specifications to 
know that the materials 
are all of the finest qual- 
ity and that the sound, 
durable construction will 
insure your satisfaction in 
this wonderful home 
throughout the years to 
come.

are bedrooms while Plan B has six rooms with three bed-

its guest closet for outer wraps. The living room has an

The two big bedrooms 
(each with its own clos-

If you have had in mind that when you 
eventually built a home it would be one that 
was cosy-looking, with a latticed porch on 
which you could sit and while away the long 
summer evenings, you will find in the Brighton 
your heart's desire. And you can depend upon 
it that passersby will gaze with envious eye — 
because here is indeed a home of outstanding 
attractiveness. 

One of the features contributing to its beauty 
is the plain matched siding in the porch gable, 
which contrasts with the double-lapped shingles 
on the sidewalls. At the same time, the circu- 
lar window and the slatted Colonial blinds add 
an ornamental touch that is decidedly pleasing. 

A generous size living room, with large 
windows to make it light and airy, is another 
feature that makes the Brighton unusually de- 
sirable. Then, too, each of the bedrooms has a 
clothes closet, and there is an extra closet off 
the hall for the storage of linens. All of the 
rooms have a ceiling height of 8 feet. 

And don't overlook the convenient kitchen 
arrangement, with a sink at one end of the 
windows, a breakfast nook at the other, and 
a cabinet in style C-5 or C-6 along the rear 
wall.

The Castlewood is an outstanding example which 
proves that you do not need a lot of money to own a 
home of your own — a home that will meet all the needs 
of your family for comfort, sturdiness and appearance. 
A home of your very own — snug, secure and paid for — 
is the surest form of security. In times of increasing 
prices and cost of living, a family in their own home 
has a big advantage over the renter. You need not 
worry about increasing rent costs when you own your 
own home. 



A home like the Castlewood that is in such good taste 
and one so economical to build deserves your earnest 
consideration. 

Shingles are regularly furnished for the sidewalls of 
the Castlewood with either White or Gray shingle stain, 
whichever color you prefer. Bevel siding and paint is 
optional for sidewalls in place of the shingles and stain 
at a small extra cost. The attractive ornamental shutters

Liberty Homes are Famous 




The sturdiness of a house depends upon two things. — (1) the 
quality and kind of the materials used and (2) the method of 
construction followed. One is as essential as the other. 



Liberty Homes are sturdy homes because the 
materials which go into them are the proper kind 
for the particular place used and are of unques- 
tionable quality — selected and graded with un- 
usual care. But this is not all ! Every joist, every 
stud, every header, every rafter, is of the right 
size and strength necessary to support the maxi- 
mum load it is expected to carry. Every piece 
of framing material is cut accurately to insure 



snug-fitting joints. The joists and studding are 
doubled around openings and properly braced 
at all crucial points so that there is no sagging 
or swaying. The completed structure stands firm 
and solid — strong and sturdy, from foundation 
to peak of roof. There is no better type of con- 
struction than that used in Liberty Homes, as 
you will see when you read the detailed specifi- 
cations which follow. 



■f/ete'i What (joei Unto £ Jliltettij 4jome 



Framing Material 

No. 1 Douglas Fir Dimension, carefully selected for 
quality and strength and thoroughly seasoned. This 
material is all machine surfaced on four sides to 
standard width and thickness, accurately cut to fit 
and marked to conform with the complete detail 
working plans. 

Girders 

For designs having 2x10" main floor joists or 2x8" 
floor joists 12" on centers, the girders are built up 
of four 2x8's. On all other designs the girders are 
built up of three 2xS's. 

Foundation 
Wall Plates 

2x6" Wall Plates 
are furnished for 
around the entire 
top of foundation 
wall. 

Floor Joist 
Headers

struction."

being furnished for each alternate pair of rafters. 

Wall and Partition Plater 

A single 2x4" plate is used at the bottom and a 
double 2x4" plate at the top of all walls and parti- 
tions. This forms a "Fire Stop" which prevents any 
circulation of air between the studding, thereby re- 
ducing the fire hazard and in addition, results in a 
much more substantial and better insulated home. 




Studding 

2x4" studding spaced 16" on centers are furnished 
for all outside walls and partitions. Studs as well 
as headers are doubled around openings. Triple 
studs furnished at corners.

nished accordingly.

with a 5 inch exposure, are furnished for all designs.

shingles.

Bevel siding (our option) with metal miters for cor- 
ners is furnished for sidewalls when shown in illustra- 
tion. If siding should be desired in place of the

terior Trim is of close fiber, fine grain, free from pitch

inous content to later work through and discolor the 
finished effect it is ideal for either a natural varnish, 
stain and varnish or enamel finish. It takes the ap-

ington and Richmond designs not furnished. 

Outside Painting Materials 

Pittsburgh Paint Products are furnished for all ex- 
terior work. Pittsburgh's Sun-Proof White Primer 
is furnished for the first or priming coat. It has ex- 
cellent bonding qualities and docs not permit the 
life-giving oils of the finish coats to be soaked into 
the surface of the wood. Such properties of a prim- 
ing coat minimize the dangers of blistering, peeling, 
scaling and premature chalking. 

Pittsburgh "Sun-Proof" Quality Paints are fur- 
nished for the second and third coats for the siding 
and all exterior woodwork, in pure white or any 
color selected. All necessary pure linseed oil and tur- 
pentine are furnished. Complete color card will be

Finishing Interior Woodwork 

Strictly pure gum shellac and waterspar four-hour 
quick drying varnish are furnished for all interior 
woodwork including doors and trim, window trim, 
stairwork, baseboards, etc., for two full coats. Oil 
stain will be furnished in place of the shellac if pre- 
ferred. If Enamel finish is desired for any or all 



rooms we will furnish Pittsburgh's four-hour quick 
drying Enamel in either semi-gloss or high-gloss fin- 
ish at no extra charge. Enamel finish is very de- 
sirable as well as practical and when used, a special 
prepared undercoater is furnished for the first coat 
to give a proper base under the Enamel. No wall- 
paper, paints or enamels are furnished for the inside 
walls or ceilings. 

Finishing Interior Floors 

For interior floors a Natural Finish is recom- 
mended. For a Natural Finish we furnish sufficient 
quick-drying water-spar varnish for two full coats. 
If stained floors are desired we will furnish oil stain 
in the finish you prefer for the first coat. When Oak 
flooring is ordered a natural oak paste filler is fur- 
nished in addition to two full coats of water-spar 
varnish. 

Fireplace and Chimneys 

Although on some of the plans the location of 
fireplaces and chimneys is suggested according to our 
best judgment, we believe it best to leave the final 
decision up to the home builder himself. Therefore, 
the materials are not cut for fireplace or chimney 
openings, and you may locate the chimneys where 
you prefer. If you do not want a fireplace you need 
"not build it at all. No materials for fireplaces or 
chimneys are furnished (see masonry materials). 

Masonry Materials 
Plaster Base 

The prices of such items as brick, sand, gravel, 
cement, wallboard, plaster lath and plaster are so 
nearly the same in all localities it is to the advantage 
of our customers to secure these materials from their 
local mason supply dealer as needed. By doing so, 
they can start the foundation work in time to have 
it completed when the Liberty Home arrives. It is 
of utmost importance that the foundation be built 
correctly. We, therefore, furnish complete founda- 
tion plans, which are prepared for each individual 
order showing the proper foundation construction. 
There is no charge for this service. Our aim is to 
aid our customers in every possible way to secure a 
first-qualitv home in the safest, quickest, most prac- 
tical way and at the very lowest expenditure.

Carpenter Praises Material 

"I received my 'Concord B' on March 21st and cannot 
express my surprise on viewing the quality of the lumber. 
In mv twelve years experience as a carpenter I have 
never "seen anv lumber that could compare with this clear, 
straight-grained material that I received from you 

Eugene E. Brown, New \ork 

Received Many Compliments 

"We are all moved in our new home and are writing to 
let you know how we like it. We sure have had a lot of 
nic° compliments on it from different parties, iney have 
been admiring the quality of the lumber, and are amazed 
that we got it put up in such a short time. We had three 
carpenters and two or three helpers and it took just a 
week to erect it ready for plastering." 

Mr. and Mrs. John Frahm, Minnesota 

Well Pleased With the Material 

"Have been too busy to drop a line letting you know how 
pleased I am with the material. The working instructions 
and plans are simple and I have experienced no difficulties. 
The lumber is much better than could be obtained here 
for the same money. I have done most of the work, but 
some relatives helped whenever they could." 

Delos E. Bennett, Michigan 



Better Quality Than Obtainable Locally 

"The lumber was very satisfactory in every way, and 
everyone who has seen it thinks that it is much better 
quality than I could have purchased around here. I con- 
sider I saved around 5 1000.00." - . 
Carroll A. Bender, Pennsylvania 

Everything Was Exactly As Specified 

"I am writing you in appreciation of our new Liberty 
home. Everything was as specified and there was some ma- 
terial of each type to spare. Every piece of lumber was 
marked as to length and place, and all fit perfectly. The 
home is situated in the country on a 2fi-acre farm. We 
have running water, -gas. bath, built-in cupboards, in fact, 
nearlv everything city folks have, except electricity. I m 
sure I saved at least $500.00 by getting it from the Lewis 
Manufacturing Company." 

Gordon B. Ruth, Ohio 

The Talk Of The Town 

"Our new home is certainly creating a lot of interest in 
this little town of 300. I think most of the population has 
inspected it. Our carpenter thinks the lumber is excellent 
and doesn't see how you do it for the price you ask " 

Mrs. K. F. Smith, Illinois

— ^ reproduce the multitude of letters which 
we have received from Liberty Home Owners

mendous savings they made as compared 
with what they would have had to pay for 
a home of the same quality and size at the 



prices charged by builders or contractors in 
their own locality. 

The letters below are typical examples of 
what our customers say. Read them They 
are conclusive proof that you can save hun- 
dreds of dollars by taking advantage of the 
Liberty Ready-Cut System when you build. 



Figures He Saved $600 
"My home is completely finished now 
and we are more than satisfied with it. 
The materials you sent were as fine as 
could be had anywhere, and according to 
my figures I saved about $600.00 by pur- 
chasing the house ready-cut from you in- 
stead of getting lumber locally." 

Charles P. Bridge, Pennsylvania 



\ What These 
\ Owners 



Saved More Than $1000 

"Our house arrived and everything was in good shape. 
My brother and I erected it without the least bit of trou- 
ble. I couldn't tell you exactly the saving I made by 
building a Liberty Home but it was more than §1000.00." 
William V. Miller, Pennsylvania 

Their "Liberty" Cost a Lot Less Money 

"We are more than pleased with our 'Concord' home 
and know that we have a far belter home by sending for 
it from you for a lot less money. We figured we saved 
at least 5500.00." 

Peter Groeneweg, Iowa 

Made a Saving of $1500 

"Received my Wellington 'A' in fine condition and it 
certainly is fine lumber, it is as nice lumber as I have 
ever seen going into a house. There have been a few 
lumber salesmen around and have admired the lumber very 
much. We figure that we saved about §1500.00 on labor 
and materials and are thankful that we sent for your cata- 
log when we did." 

Albert M. Mohn, Wisconsin 

A Saving of at Least $800 

"We are very well pleased with our new insulated 
'Concord A' home. We had no trouble at all in construct- 
ing it. The materials were all of the best. My husband, 
with the help of one carpenter, put it up. We saved at 
least SS00 by purchasing a Liberty Home from you and 
will highly recommend our Liberty Home to anyone who 
comes to see it." 

Mrs. A. W. Difiore, Ohio 



f 



A Saving of at Least $2000 

"We are living in our new home and are 
sure satisfied with it and your prompt 
service and treatment. I consider the ma- 
terial first class, and will say I have saved 
at least §2000 as compared with what it 
would have cost me if I had bought ma- 
terial at home." 

A. B. Hills, Pennsylvania 



A Saving of $1000 or $1200 

"In reply to your letter of the 22nd. wish to say we 
are comfortably settled in our new home and more than 
plra-cd. Ii all was above our expectations. We figure wi 
saved about §1000 or §1200 according to bids from home 
contractors. Then I doubt if it would have been as good 
material. Everyone says we must have S5000 in our home. 
After all we have only about §3X00, that is, including a 
drilled well, electric pump, a completely furnished electric 
home." 

Mr. S. E. Frye, Pennsylvania 



Cost $1000 to $1500 Less 

"My wife and I, with the help of two men the first 

two weeks, did the entire job other than the plastering 

and brick masonry. I have been advised that a similar 

house constructed "locally cost from §1000 to §1500 more." 

Lawrence Martin, Vermont 

Saved a Substantial Sum 

"Hardly a day goes by that someone doesn't remark as 
to how nice our home is. It really is a beauty and some- 
thing we will cherish for years to come. The house is so 
well made that it heats very easily and stays warm with 
a very low fire. There are no drafts at all. What sur- 
prises me most is the economical cost of construction, I 
am positive we saved many dollars by getting your ready- 
cut home. Every piece of the house went together per- 
fectly. Every joint fitted to the sixteenth of an inch. A 
saw was never needed at all. Our contractor said that he 
never saw anything go together so well without having 
some cutting to do." 

James B. Rogers, Ohio

It's Easy to Buy a Liberty Home 



lOkoicz y ' 5<fa fn eBit9h* 



To accommodate all our customers we offer several different payment plans. Nat- 
urally, the most economical way to buy is for cash. But if it is not convenient for 
you to forward the entire cash with your order ycu may choose any one of the other 
payment plans described below. All remittances should be by certified check, bank 
draft, money order or your own personal check. 



»

full amount is sent with the order. The list 
price of each home is shown on the Freight 
Paid Price List which is enclosed. This price 
includes everything listed under the specifi- 
cations, including prepaid freight, in accord- 
ance with our guarantee. 

JW One-Third with Order, 
it Balance on Delivery 

If you prefer to send one-third of the list price 
with your order, you may do so, and then pay 
the remaining two-thirds when the materials 
arrive and you take delivery. Under this plan 
you are allowed the privilege of examining 
the materials in the car before releasing pay- 
ment of the balance. A cash discount of One 
Percent is allowed off the list price of any 
home when one-third is paid with the order 
and the balance on delivery. 



EV Five-Day Examination

posit" on the back of the order. Mail the

examination period is over, and you find every- 
thing is satisfactory. Under this plan a cash

If you are planning on financing your new 
home through a Bank, Building & Loan Asso- 
ciation or other financial institution, we are

under, these terms as we will arrange with the 
loaning agency for payment as the construc- 
tion work progresses. 



■k Monthly Payment Plan 
|y Three Years to Pay 

For homebuilders who find that it is not con- 
venient to meet the regular cash terms, we 
have developed a convenient monthly payment 
plan which requires only a small down pay- 
ment with the order, the balance being pay- 
able in equal monthly payments extending over 
a period of three years. If you own a lot free 
and clear or the means to obtain one, and a 
little cash besides, you can do like thousands 
of our customers have done, who have used 
this plan to secure homes of their own, and 
who could never otherwise have done so. The 
amount of the Down Payment and the 
Monthly payments for each design are shown 
on the Time Payment Price List which is 
enclosed. 



You have studied the house designs. You have studied the specifications. You have read the 
letters from other Liberty Home builders. You have seen that Liberty Homes as pictured in this 
book are designed by skilled architects and engineers, who planned homes that are staunch, 
sturdy, practical, but also beautiful. One of these homes is just the home you want. Then don't 
put off building it. Home ownership has been made so easy that you are simply wasting good 
money if you keep on paying rent. You can be living in the home of your choice within a few 
short weeks. Decide which of the payment- plans listed above will be most convenient for you, 
then write and let us help you with your plans at once.
